Stacy's fiction and poetry have been featured in New South, The Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide, Gertrude, Buckmxn Journal, and The Madison Review, among numerous others. He was awarded the 2019 Oregon Literary Fellowship in Drama for GARGOYLES & DANDELIONS, an original queer noir television series set in 1940s Los Angeles, currently in development.
Stacy is also the founder of Launch Creative NW, an unconventional coaching business preparing current or would-be creatives to build a sense of permission around their art, hone a steady practice, and translate these habits into moving work to the next level.
Stacy earned a BFA in film and television production from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. In addition to prior work in television, Stacy has worked in advertising, independent film, politics, and public service. He is currently a writer, copy editor, and content producer with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT).
For more than a decade, Stacy ran writing workshops for Write Around Portland, a nonprofit that provides free 10-week writing workshops for those who would otherwise not have access to writing in community with others due to income, disability, or other barriers.
Stacy has been a featured speaker, workshop trainer, and event organizer with the Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative where he has spoken on the intersection of creative practice, queer identity, and disability. Stacy uses assistive dictation software to aid his writing and editing, which helps manage chronic pain and neuropathy in his arms.
Originally from Los Angeles, Stacy lives in Portland with his husband Jon in a simple farmhouse built from old-growth Oregon timber, trying not to mind the ghosts in the basement where he writes with a space heater and a small therapy lamp.
